I can’t stop crying looking at fancams and pictures of Yoongi crying.. I keep thinking about his stories and lyrics about himself struggling with anxiety, self-consciousness, depression, etc. since he was 13. And now all his and Bangtan’s hardwork has been awarded as “Artist of the Year”. I can’t even imagine how much love and excitement his heart must have felt hearing they won such a big award. I’m so proud of him for being where he is now as Min Yoongi and musician and performer Suga/Agust D.
now that I think I can handle the hubub and it’s died down a bit, thank you everyone so much for the outstanding outpouring of support and excitement for Viridescent Skies!!! I am super touched (and a bit overwhelmed!!) and so, so very glad that everyone enjoyed it so much!!! The reaction was much bigger than I expected, but honestly I am just thrilled everyone enjoyed it! Please treasure my darkside tsundere trashson, Anakin ‘I don’t like that little monster at all :\’ Skywalker!!!!
Thank you everyone who ever reblogged a part of it (whether you added tags or not)!! Without you, I never would have felt encouraged to continue writing it. Thank you everyone who ever sent me asks about it! Without you, I wouldn’t have had some of the ideas I did! It might not have gone in the direction it had! Thank you to everyone who liked and replied to the posts, and who stuck through with the story even if it made you a bit uncomfortable
(no one has said as much, but I’m aware of what I write lol)
because writing does not take place in a void, and all those sparkling stars reminded me that there was something out there in the darkness.
Special mention to @grayjedii , @strunmahmah , @isweariamanadmin , and @ebonykain (who I can’t tag??? for reasons????? wat) who sent me nice messages and encouragement. @likealeafonthewind who has bolstered me with ideas for my various AUs and may have trapped me in Star Wars fandom (I am happy to be here), and also helped me reach a wider audience I would not have without, and @fireflyfish for being nice and also helping me reach that audience and being excited about VS, and also for writing Tano and Kenobi because sometimes I like to read fic to make me excited about writing my own xD (I LOVE IT IN CASE YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED) @rainglazed FOR BEING SUPER SWEET and drawing fanart!!!! for Viridescent Skies!! because I !!!! am seriously overwhelmed!!!! thank you so much!!!!
There are also so many more people out there that reblogged and commented and tagged on Viridescent Skies than I have mentioned here. I assure you, your encouragement and excitement and wonderful words have been read and treasured and I ‘!!!!!!!!!!!!’ about them and I’m just so pleased!! I have usernames memorized and I re-read the lovely things you said to encourage myself. I am excited!!! that you are excited!!! about Viridescent Skies!!!!!
Without every single one of you, this AU would have languished as that very first part.
I don’t have a set date, but there will be an Episode II of Viridescent Skies because I heckin love this AU and I want to show that my trashson can actually avoid falling entirely to the Darkside, Anakin, thank you: I know you need attachment to be stable and have been denied that at every turn, but please do not depend entirely on your tiny padawan to provide that.
Also because it deals with Sidious and all that fun stuff, it will take a while for me to plan. I am more of an Anakin than a Sidious lmao, so being that sneaky will take me a while to plan out. Thankfully, we have Obi-Wan on the case
(I have to still write Obi-Wan being smart though ohhh my god)
Also the thing I’ve been talking about, Anakin’s Tatooine Trauma, will be on the back burner. I don’t yet have a solid hook for it, but I think it’s important to address. Also it is Suffering, and I dislike writing Suffering (alluding to it is all kinds of fun tho) but yes. I have ideas and I have finished ironing out the kinks, so all I have to do is figure out how to climb into Shmi’s head.
in the mean time, I’m probably gonna work on something else, like the timetraveling vaderwan au, or getula minor which has yet to have a single part posted because I haven’t written it yet Dx
i'm so excited for you and everyone going to the bts concert! aaaahhhh pls update us with all the little details :D (if you don't spontaneously combust after the show i mean)
Anon, thank you so much, I feel very lucky to be able to go, and you fucking bet, I’ll do my best to write what I remember down and post it up, I don’t know if much of it will be….understandable? But I will give it my best shot! It’s the least I can do, I lucked out - my friend was the one who nabbed these tickets, so I’m riding her good luck to the show. < 3 I’ll figure out something to tag them and then post that so people that want to follow can and people that don’t want to read it can blacklist. Thank you so much again for being excited, I’m excited too!
Okay seriously I am so emotional right now. I was just watching the Wolf 359 Swag Sweepstakes announcement because I think all the people involved are adorable and talented, and then MY NAME WAS THE NAME DRAWN FROM THE HAT??? Cecilia Lynn-Jacobs, star of my heart and the voice actor bringing my favourite character in the world to life, just read MY NAME, with HER LIPS. MINE. I screamed so loudly my housemates all heard me and then I was so excited while telling them that I put my leg on the wall MULTIPLE TIMES and I made them watch the announcement with me so I could be sure I wasn’t dreaming! I can’t believe this! I’M GETTING ZACH’S SCRIPT FROM THE LIVE SHOW. @iamzachvalenti can you please please sign the script and get the others (especially Cecilia Lynn-Jacobs, because Lovelace!!!) to do so too? Like no pressure and you totally don’t have to, but if you did I would probably transcend this earthly realm and exist as a being of pure light–or something.
So I’m going to put all my cards on the table here, and just… let the shit hit the fan.
I am pro-pregnancy. Yep. I’m super excited. I think it’s going to be adorable, and fun, and I think it is both absolutely in-character and a wonderful, natural arc for this couple and this show.
I also think the pregnancy was the least important development in that ep. It obviously was the development with the most permanent, unavoidable, life-altering consequences, but it was not the most important thing we learned. Danny and Mindy arriving at where they need to be to be a functional, permanent partnership, that was the most important thing we learned.
Danny believing he deserves love. Danny believing he has the capacity to change, learn, explore, grow. Danny believing he is lovable no matter whether he chooses to grow or not.
Danny envisaging an entire future for himself that not only involves another human being, but incorporates their dreams as well. His future isn’t just ‘his life, plus Mindy’. It’s their life. Built together - literally. This is important for me because I was extremely squeamish about Mindy moving into Danny’s apartment. It never felt right to me. This brownstone is the show telling me I was right: that their space, whatever it ends up being, should be theirs.
Danny having genuine, comfortable friendships with his coworkers. A sense of loyalty towards Jeremy based on more than just the contracts he repeatedly cited. A sense of betrayal that Peter was leaving them - because they rely on each other.
Mindy believing she is worth something professionally, and that her needs and her professional dreams deserve to be met.
Mindy seeing herself not only in terms of her little meatball, but in terms of her career and personal desires. Mindy still considering her dreams for family and how those she loves will be impacted by what she wants.
Danny and Mindy turning to each other for comfort when they are left with the uncertainty that huge decisions bring. Danny and Mindy folding into each other, a mutually supportive unit despite the storm they’re in the eye of. Danny and Mindy, honest, heartfelt and kind.
All of that was crucial for the baby to even exist. And that’s good, because it means this baby isn’t a mere plot point. It isn’t an accessory. It feels like the physical manifestation of Mindy’s Project for Season 3. It feels like Mindy facing the most important decisions of her life - and facing those decisions with a partner who supports her without eclipsing her.
This episode felt like Season 2. The baby? The baby feels like Season 4.
I am so excited because we will see Liam Jones as a bartender and we’ll see Liam and Killian on a ship sailing and probably fighting and being honourable and handsome and soaking wet and we will see Killian meet Liam again and we will see him in the CS house with Emma and Liam sharing a drink and I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND HOW EXCITED I AM
I was listening to Sound the Bells and I suddenly got WAY TOO EXCITED about something we never got to actually see in RvB, which is all of the freelancers lined up and ready to do battle in a classic Desperate Last Stand, having already taken some serious damage and lost a lot of blood, some of them using the last of their energy, and I’m not saying it’s happening but just listen to the song and consider.
No but you guys really don't get how fucking excited I am
My dad was a kid of the 60s and 70s, and his father owned first edition copies of the Hobbit and the LOTR series (as well as the Simarillion and pretty much every book Tolkein ever wrote). He grew up reading the books, and the first thing he did when I was old enough to read was to read the Hobbit to me. And then I read it on my own. And then when the LOTR movies were announced and I was old enough to truly grasp the story, I devoured the books in preparation. I spent 2000-2003 in Middle Earth. I would play pretend that I was Frodo and I was off on my magical journey to Mt. Doom. I was the brave and daring Aragorn, slaying Orcs in Mirkwood, or I was Bilbo matching wits with Smaug under the Misty Mountain. Every waking moment I was alone, I would go off and live that life.
I threw a freaking Oscar party just for Return of the King, for christ’s sake. And I didn’t care that it won all eleven oscars and it got repetitive. I cheered for every single one.
And then came the wait. The horrible, terrible, twelve years of production hell that was the Hobbit. My brothers and sisters of the LOTR fandom don’t need to be told how frustrating this was. It passed from hand to hand and was put on hold for what felt like forever, directors came and went, and it eventually wasn’t reported on at all. I honestly had given up on it ever coming to pass, and got on with my life.
Then Peter Jackson showed up again.
And that first production blog was released, and he was walking on the set of Rivendell again.
And I am tearing up just thinking about it.
This is the movie I have waited my entire life to see. This is the movie that will make me put aside whatever anger I have for my dad to go see it with him, because he took me to the midnight screening of every other movie in the franchise. It wouldn’t be right to see it without him. This is the movie I’ve dreamed about since I was very VERY small, and a movie I’ve played out and created in my head countless times.
I will be an uncontrollable sobbing mess come December. Just a fair warning.
